I really am not sure where to post this, so I apologize before hand if I'm in the wrong forum topic here.
Anyway, I'm having a few issues here...currently, I have not had a bowel movement for about
5-6 days now. The last time I went, it hurt to go and it came out too large and I was in pain for a bit. The days after, I could not go whatsoever no matter how much I tried. I refrained from straining too hard as I don't want to cause any problems that way, but I am starting to really worry here, I have been drinking a lot of water, and took Ducolax stool softener to try and see if it will help. Currently, i am on the second dosage of it and still nothing. I do have the urges to go, but when I go to the bathroom and sit, the urge goes away, or I end up straining and barely anything comes out. I just turned 19 and my insurance is expired now. There is no way I can afford to see a doctor at the moment nor can anyone help me pay for this. I would like to know what else I can do because I really don't want it to become a serious health issue.
As a note, I also suffer from anxiety so that may be the cause and unfortunately, I have not been eating healthy lately so that may be the cause of the constipation, but I'm worried why it hasn't gone away yet...
